I love this place! I came in from out of state and not knowing anyone. With the orientation (you take a 3 day trip) I made some great friends i feel confident I'll know for life. Everyone is very accepting and welcoming. I can't imagine myself anywhere else. Also I know for some, Arkansas might be a turn off (I'm not from here and was hesitant myself to come) but it really shouldn't be! It's so much more beautiful than I expected and fall was amazing.
My overall experience at Hendrix College has been wonderful. It is one of the best schools in the region. The administration really care that I succeed in my education. I am always able to go and speak with my professors and my advisor. They knew I needed more experience in writing papers and had me take Introduction to Writing, so that I could learn how to properly write papers. I feel welcome in all the school buildings. The students and staff are all warm and welcoming. I am also able to play baseball for the College and that has been a good experience also. I have learned to be a part of team and to also be a leader to other players. If I had to do it again, I would choose Hendrix College as my school. It is just an all-around wonderful College.
I have loved almost all my classes. My teachers have been passionate about their subjects and engaging in their teaching. Even the really challenging classes have shown me that every teacher really does want to see all of their students succeed. The choices for classes are diverse, many times it is hard to choose what to take because so many sound interesting. You are highly encouraged to take various types of classes to become a well rounded student.
